The Stephanie Lake Company is premiering a new large-scale dance work for Melbourne Fringe
Stephanie Lake is one of Melbourne's most innovative artists and an extraordinary choreographic talent. For this year's Melbourne Fringe she's taking over Arts Centre Melbourne with 50 dancers, who'll fill the stage of the Fairfax Studio and beyond.
Lake said: “Colossus looks at how we create and follow icons and the subsequent rejection of those leaders – whether they be ideological, political or even celebrity. We tend to want something to believe in and would prefer to follow than to exert individual agency. Giving over to outside influence can absolve us from responsibility and that can be of comfort. I want to look at the beauty and ugliness of that tendency.”
